Read an Excerpt

This section is the heart of the book. It describes in detail how to make five different kinds of papier- and cloth-mâché projects. I've tried to give you some variety. The Basic Monster will work for any potential monster maker. The Monster Marionette is a variation of the Basic Monster for those of you who feel that art should be functional as well as pretty. The Monster Trophy is perfect if you want something amazing over the mantel. If monsters aren't your thing (maybe this book was a gift-someone gave it to you because you are a little "quirky" and "artistic"), and you want something a little more traditional, go for the Monster Traditional Piggy.

If you are one of those mischievous young boys who love to bug Little Sister (but you don't want to put forth too much effort), the Monster Ugly Doll project is for you. I've also added a "Special Halloween Section" (p. 133) for those of you who want art pieces for that particular season.

Okay, you caught me. I'm writing my own review. I'm doing so because my book is new and no one has done so yet. So you'll have to trust me. Look, I'm one of the top papier mache artists in the country. I know, sounds pretty arrogant. But it's true. I've been doing this for 35 years. I've published three books on the subject. The first two, "The Simple Screamer" and "Make Something Ugly...For a Change" were in print for over 22 years and sold all over the world. I've received thousands of letters, emails, and photographs over the years from people who have used my techniques and LOVED the results. This newest how-to monster making book is the sequel to first two. I put my heart and soul into this one. (Well, not my heart I guess...but I did my soul) Everything I've learned about papier mache, every hint, every trick of the trade is in this book. And it's really fun to read. It's irreverent, crazy, and somewhat, well, bent. Still don't believe me? Go to my website, and check me out. Watch my videos and look at my galleries. Then come back and buy the book. After that, write your own review. Then this won't look so bad. Okay? Please?

What a jerk teacher! Continue the epcness :D oh and I think it might be kinda neat if you made refrences to Marvel. Something about redskull, or whatever. You don't have to, but it would be pretty cool!
